We found leaving Belleville, Ontario in late April with the tree buds barely visible and watching through the car’s windscreen the transition to summer leaves (and temperature) in Tennessee a very interesting experience. We met up with photographer John Solnina (website link) on a photo tour of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The first gallery of images are from that outing. We enjoyed our visit to Tennessee and photographing the pioneer structures, waterfalls, elk, bears, and the overall landscape.
The second gallery is from the Hocking Hills area in Ohio. We spent a few days exploring Hocking Hills State Park. The main attraction for us was Ash Cave which is a huge cavern with a waterfall falling over the edge. We were not disappointed and enjoyed photographing this landmark as well as other spots of interest in the park. The last image I took, which is the first seen in the gallery, was at a small waterfall at Conkle’s Hollow; when the sun popped out and shone on the water in the dark cave, it was magical!
We hope you enjoy viewing our photos from this trip.
As always, our previous trips can be found on the Galleries tab on the menu bar.
